Try positioning your forward foot, to have more of the toe on the pedal, instead of your whole foot. Then, dont kick straight, kick at an angle, like you would of if your doing a kickflip on a skateboard.

i learned crankflip with the shaun tutorial..
learn all stages
the arm position is very important because it keep the unicycle under you

Im trying to learn crankflips and I don't even know where to start. I can't get the spin at all. I think I have some kind of problem in that department because I cant even move my back foot when I try to kick with my front foot. What did everyone do when they first started to learn? what method did you use to learn?

Well, I'm close, and I just watched Shaun's vid a few times.
The most important thing is actually trying it. It also helps if whatever foot you're kicking with is towards the outside edge and back of the pedal.

I had to learn triple zero plants before I managed to land a crankflip, it's 95% in your head. Ledge plants and double ledge plants are good practice too. If you think you're stuck on crankflips then just practice zeros and ledges more, ingram that feeling of landing seat in, feet on the pedals until it's second nature.

yeah. when i spin fully the uni ends up infront of me. otherwise i just do 3/4 flips. good enough.

I can do 1/2 rev. :p Maybe 3/4 rev could work fine, but I need lot of practise for crankflip.
